     Year-to-year traffic at the complete review was up 8% in March, the biggest surge in quite a while.
     Two new reviews of prize-winning French novels impressively make it onto the list -- the Énard and the Carrère -- and it will be interesting to see if they have any staying-power.

For recent bestseller lists, go to previous lists.
For annual and older lists, see also the 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, , 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 , 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 lists.
